FARGO – North Dakota State University is offering new online certificates to increase access to technical skills training from industry-recognized programs such as Amazon Web Services, Salesforce, CompTIA, and Pega. Courses offered through the partnership will open new avenues for high-paying careers in the tech industry and help meet the state’s workforce needs.
These certifications are designed for students and professionals at any stage of their education or career. Many certification courses offer the flexibility to attend at your convenience, while offering one-on-one instruction and training from industry-certified instructors.
The curriculum consists of two tracks, an accelerator program and an emerging technology program. The accelerator program offers online, asynchronous, and instructor-led training courses to help students gain certification in the technology they need. The Emerging Technologies program hires, trains, and certifies entry-level technical talent over a 10- to 12-week period, and then deploys them to Fortune 500 companies and federal contractors.
Start dates and fees depend on the course. A complete list of course options is available online at ndsu-catalog.skillstorm.com/.
